The first part of this paper deals with GST, and more specifically, the major amendments to the Goods and Services Tax Act 1985 (the “GST Act”) arising from the first comprehensive legislative review of that Act. Minor amendments of interest are also noted. Two statements recently issued by the Commissioner of Inland Revenue are also discussed.

The second part contains case studies which are mostly GST-orientated. Answers are provided separately. These answers are only “proposed solutions” and are not intended to be definitive.

The third part deals with the new regime for taxing minor beneficiaries of trusts.

The fourth part discusses future developments and, in particular, the recent release of the Tax Review 2001 Issues Paper. It also suggests that there is a possible need for the Inland Revenue to refocus its legislative programme.

The fifth part presents recent tax cases of general interest.
